One Earth Film Festival Comes to Campus

On March 7, Northwestern will host a screening of From the Ashes as a part of the One Earth Film Festival. This event is free and open to students, faculty, staff, and members of the greater community. It will take place at 7 p.m. in the McCormick Foundation Center Forum. A facilitated discussion will follow the screening.

From the Ashes chronicles American workers in the coal industry, and the changing nature of the industry under the Trump Administration. From Appalachia to the West’s Powder River Basin, the film goes beyond the rhetoric of the “war on coal” to present compelling and often-heartbreaking stories about what is at stake for our economy, health, and climate. The film invites audiences to learn more about an industry on edge and what it means for their lives. Produced by RadicalMedia and directed by Michael Bonfiglio, the film was an official selection at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.

This screening is part of the One Earth Film Festival which includes events at venues across the Chicago region. The festival runs from March 1 through 10 with films addressing climate change, health & the environment, sustainable building, and environmental advocacy.

Screenings near the Chicago campus include Sea of Hope, showing March 6 at the Chicago Cultural Center, and The Carnivore’s Dilemma, showing at Old St. Patrick’s Church on March 10.

sustainNU is hosting the screening on Northwestern’s campus in partnership with the One Book One Northwestern program.

To ensure a seat, please reserve your ticket for the Northwestern screening. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
